Digital information, such as cookies, your passwords and bookmarks is stored on your PC, which may leave the door open to privacy and security breaches. Even after you think you have deleted some files, they may still remain on your computer.
When you delete a file, empty your recycle bin or format your hard disk, all you do is alter the structure of the drive, leaving most of your data intact and recoverable. This easy to use file shredder can be a useful addition to other privacy tools you may use for ensuring selected files are completely removed, deleted files become unrecoverable to anyone who may use your computer.
Lavasoft File Shredder also has uses in the workplace as well as at home as it enables you to take complete control of any sensitive documents or files.
Files cannot be recreated by other users, as it enables you to completely remove selected information from your hard disk or any other external drives. You may also document private files which you have removed, which is useful, especially within a business environment.
